Great for the odd night.

Welcome was very friendly. Bed very comfy but found 2 millipedes on the top of the duvet. Loved the electric blanket as the room was a bit chilly. No bottled water in the room but there was a small honesty bar where you could purchase some. Breakfast was sufficient and promptly served.
